Makati New Year’s Eve Countdown To 2008!!

While commuting to office this morning, the driver of the jeep to Washington street while in Ayala Manila Peninsula area, turn back and said that the road is closed.

Oh, it’s that time of the year again. Same as last year… It’s Makati City’s New Year’s Eve Parteeh!

So, trying to stay awake, I walked the remaining stretch of Ayala Avenue…

See the swaying building? Told you, I was sleepy.. :D

The stage was being setup in the corner of Ayala and Makati Avenue, just beside The Manila Penn and Makati Stock Exchange building (last year it was in Paseo De Roxas).
